The Paul Noble series is perfect for getting a good base/refresher course in Spanish before moving on to more advanced courses.
I listened to all the parts : 1, 2, 3 and 4. Then moved directly to Pimsleur, spanish phase 4... but I might have an advantage because I have been to Mexico for almost a year as a child so although my spanish was quite rusty, I still had a nice base. I just needed to brush it up a little.
I like that there is no music, no 'trying' to entertain with phoney conversations. Just basic, right to the point spanish!
Good introduction for absolute beginners like me. I especially liked Mahmoud and Janes's interventions/explanations of the origins of certain words.
I really did not like this teaching method of sharing the class with two other 'students'. At first, I thought it was a clever idea but then found it distracting and annoying to have to wait for their answers. Also, often, when Jane was asking to repeat something, I did not have time to press 'pause' to think of my answer, one of the two students already was starting to answer and spoil it for me. hahaha. I felt like the two other students were waisting my time.
